A 22-year-old Northallerton man was taken to hospital after being hit by a car that failed to stop at the scene.

North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses to the incident, which happened on Northallerton High Street at 3.20am on Sunday, May 31 and involved a Silver Peugeot 206 that collided with the man.

The vehicle involved failed to stop after hitting the victim who had been on a night out in the town.

The man was taken by ambulance to the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton with a minor injury to his neck. He was released from hospital a short time later.

PC Gavin Dobson said: “ We are urging anyone who saw the collision to get in touch, in particular, we are appealing for information about the registration number of the car and who was driving the vehicle at the time of the collision. The car involved also failed to stop after the collision and the driver of the vehicle has a duty to comply with Road Traffic Legislation to report their involvement.

“It would also be beneficial for the driver of the vehicle to get in touch with the police to report their involvement and assist the police with their enquiries.

“Thankfully the victim’s injuries were minor, however, they could have been far more serious.”

North Yorkshire Police are appealing for witnesses who saw the collision or anyone who recalls seeing the vehicle prior to the collision, to get in touch as soon as possible to assist the investigation.
